In Focus: Interview with Pascual Arriesgado, winner of the ENR Earth Day poster contest

The El Nido Resorts Environment Department hosted the first resorts-wide Earth Day poster-making contest last April 22, 2013, where the ENR staff showed off their artistic skills and care for the environment by creating brilliant and creative posters that promoted Earth-friendly messages using recycled materials. Pascual Arriesgado of Lagen Island Resort-Purchasing Dept. emerged as the overall winner. Here, we interview Pascual and ask him about his awesome entry.

ENVT: Bakit ninyong naisipang sumali sa contest? (Why did you decide to join the contest?)
PA: Para maipakita ko na may talent din ako para sa contest na ganito [art contest]. (To show that I had talent in art.)

ENVT: Anu-anong mga materyales ang ginamit mo sa inyong artwork? (What materials did you use?)
PA: Ginamitan ko sya ng styrofoam, bunga ng taluto – pinutol ko lang ang kanyang bunga [para makuha ang pakpak], Scotch Brite, pinagtasahan ng lapis, at dahon ng basket fern. Gumamit din ako ng crayons para pangkulay ng dagat. Yung bulaklak ay gawa sa balot ng chichiria. (I used styrofoam, the wings of the taluto fruit, Scotch Brite [scrubbing pad], pencil shavings, and leaves of the basket fern. I also used crayons to color the ocean. I made the flowers using junk food wrappers.)

ENVT: Kagano mo sya katagal ginawa? (How long did it take you to make this?)
PA: Tatlong gabi po, pagkatapos ng trabaho. (Three nights, after my work shift.)

ENVT: Ano ang inyong naramdaman nung nalaman mo na ikaw ang nanalo? (How did you feel when you found out that you won?)
PA: Proud ako na ako ang napiling champion. Nag-enjoy po ako dahil napakita ko ang aking talent. (I’m proud to have been chosen as the winner. I also enjoyed it because I was able to show my talent.)
